Join us Wednesday, April 12 as Jeffrey Mikres, IT Director, Consumer Solutions at LifeWay Christian Resources, shares his team's experience with Google Venture's design sprint process - ideating a new product and pitching it to clients, all in a 5 day sprint.
From Jeffrey Mikres:
"Google Venture's design sprint process represents an effective and proven way to ideate around new product development. They've used it with hundreds of companies as well as with internal teams at Google. The process involves a 5-day plan that culminates on a Friday putting your prototype in front of real, potential customers to get feedback. This talk will walk you through the basics of what happens during those 5 days and will give you the tools to come up with your own product ideas and get them in front of customers. It'll also touch on the recent design sprint run at LifeWay for a potential new product. If you develop products and ideas for users, and haven't read Sprint (https://goo.gl/csjGk4), I highly recommend it. Jeff will also be doing a short Q&A after he presents."
